. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are tragedies in life that shake our souls and break our hearts. today the nation experienced one of those tragedies. every american will struggle to come to grips with what happened today in a small community in connecticut. sandy hook elementary school in the small community of about 27,000 residents was the site of a shooting rampage. at this hour we know 26 people at the school were shot and killed by a lone gunman. 20 of those deceased were children. surviving students and their parents said teachers ordered children to hide in closets. witnesses reported hearing dozens of shots, as many as 100 rounds. police found the shooter dead. officers never fired a shot. the gunman's mother was found dead at a newtown location where the gunman lived. police have released no motive for the attack. the weapons used in the shooting were all legally purchased and were registered to the gunman's mother. an emotional president obama addressed the nation this afternoon from the white house. >> we've endured too many o

. >>> want to bring in today's power panel. congressman gerald nadler of new york, jackie hilling and ezra klein, msnbc policy analyst and "washington post" columnist. jackie, i want to start with you. last night was the fourth time we as a country have watched this president have to address a national tragedy like this. i want to remind everybody of the last three times that we have seen the president take to a mic to comfort the country. >> it may be hard to comprehend the twisted logic that led to this tragedy, but this much we do know. no faith justifies these murderous and craven acts. >> this tragedy prompts reflection and debate, as it should. let's make sure it's worthy of those we have lost. >> i hope that over the next several days, next several weeks and next several months, we all reflect on how we can do something about some of the senseless violence. >> can we recognize the president's words last night that enough is enough, and that something will come out of this, because right now, the country is in need of something stronger, and some resolve as we just point out with the
that paul has it's an amazing platform in "the new york times" where he could be doing is laying out all sorts of proposals for how to fix the short-term problems of jobs and the economy which he focuses on and the long-term problems of the debt and he takes shot at people like me because i'm a political independent. instead of saying -- let me just finish. instead of pointing fingers and instead of pointing fingers, i really think we need to have republicans and democrats work together and compromise on this. we all agree with that, maya mcginnis. i think it is worth noting that the gop has 115 times, 115 times the republican minority has held up a bill's passage or they've threatened to filibuster. 115 times, that is unprecedented, is it not? >> so you're talking about filibusters. you're talking about the way that washington is actually not able to get anything done anymore and that's a tremendous problem. i'm talking about the fiscal challenges facing the country and the fact that all parts of the budget will have to be addressed. spending and entitlements and revenues and things tha
-old jack pinto, a new york giants fan, and noah pozner, whose twin sister survived the shooting. we are also learning new information about the connecticut state police investigation, including that the gunman, adam lanza, had enough ammunition if given more time to shoot hundreds of students in the halls of sandy hook. >> every single facet of the weapons will be analyzed. every single round of ammunition will be looked at and examined for any kind of physical evidence. i alluded yesterday to the volume of rounds, for example, that were seized or recovered. each singular round will be examined. >> president obama last night visited with families who lost loved ones inside that school. here, he is holding slain principal dawn hochsprung's baby granddaughter. the president sat among the mourners of newtown at the vigil and told them they are not alone in their grief. >> all across this land of ours, we have wept with you. we pulled our children tight. >> in this speech, one he penned largely on his own, the president promised the people of that community that their loss would not go
. but according to the new york times, congressional negotiators have dropped the provision in the effort to merge the bill's house and senate versions. the swiss banking giant ubs has been ordered to pay a $1.5 billion fine for its role in the manipulation of the london interbank offered rate, or libor, which provides the basis for rates on trillions of dollars in transactions across the globe. the rigging of libor meant millions of borrowers paid the wrong amount on their loans. the bulk of the fines, $1.2 billion, will be paid in the u.s., with the rest going to britain and switzerland. ubs has also admitted to committing wire fraud through its tokyo branch on libor rates in japanese currency. at least nine medical workers have been killed in a series of attacks on a polio vaccination effort in pakistan. three people were killed today near the city of peshawar, one day after six workers, all female, were killed in peshawar and karachi. the shootings are believed to be part of a militant campaign against polio eradication in response to the c.i.a.-backed fake vaccination program in pakistan that
of new york city. it's near danbury, connecticut. the young man who police say was the shooter reportedly walked into two different classrooms at sandy hook elementary. he fired dozens of rounds. he killed 26 people. 18 children pronounced dead at the scene. six adults pronounced dead at the scene. and then two children who survived their initial wounds and were hospitalized later died in hospital. the shooter then killed himself at the school. the associated press is citing a law enforcement official moments ago saying authorities found more than the previously described two guns at the school once they responded. more firearms than the two we have previously heard about. they're not giving any further details yet. but that report just in from the associated press. the students who were not shot, none of them older than fourth graders, were escorted out of the building by police officers this morning. they were taken to a fire station next door. police officers reportedly told some of the children to keep their eyes closed until they had reached the parking lot. law enforcement officials

and planned everything. 6-year-old benjamin wheeler's family moved from queens, new york, to newtown, connecticut, for its promise of grassy lawns and good schools. that promise has been shattered. and last night newtown prayed with the help of the president. but even he knows there is no solace, no answers right now, just pain. and questions and prayers for the lost. >> let the little children come to me, jesus said. and do not hinder them. for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven. charlotte, daniel, olivia, josephine, anna, dylan, madeline, catherine, chase, jesse, james, grace, emilie, jack, noah, caroline, jessica, benjam benjamin, avielle, allison. god has called them all home. for those of us who remain, let us find the strength to carry on and make our country worthy of their memory. >> and good morning. joe will have a special message on the recent events coming up. but first, a look at where things stand today. we're learning new details about the time line of friday's devastating attack. police say the gunman, 20-year-old adam lanza was armed with hundreds of rounds of amm
carthy and i from new york introduced this bill earlier this session after the terrible shootings in aurora which are right outside my congressional district. we tried to push for this bill. it's only a step of what we need to do, but to be honest, you're never going to stop some seriously deranged person from trying to shoot again. but what you can do is stop them from having these magazines that will kill 26 people in a ten-minute period. and so we're urging -- the bill's ready. we signed up 16 people in one hour this morning. we think that speaker boehner could bring it to the floor this week and show the country that we're really making some positive first steps to keeping these serious, serious weapons out of the hands of people who are criminals or who are seriously mentally ill. >> so you think that it's possible to bring this to the floor of the house this week? >> we could do it. it's been introduced. it's ripe. we have a number of co-sponsors. then the first of the year we're going to work with senator feinstein and others to do a more comprehensive bill to deal with the assault w

, detroit, philadelphia, new york, the death of children across this country is enough to say to us we must end all of this madness, come to the table and i think politicians finally get that. >> can the nra, can the influence of this organization, which has intimidated lawmakerings for years, thrown money at people that they don't want to see in the congress because they want to protect all of this fear mongering that they do. can they finally be defeated by this public outrage? i think that's where we are right now. it's good thing there's not an election tomorrow, the nra would be in serious trouble. but it's the fear mongering that they've done. can the public finally overcome that? >> i think so. but let's not undervalue them, so to speak, or at least let's not underestimate them. we know that the nra is laying in the cut. they know better to come forward because they know that feelings are tender, that the national conscious has been sered. they know that people are outraged and fed up with all of this madness and bologna. they're going to be waiting for the right time to reemerge and
, detroit, and new york. some of the 84 million drivers were traveling this holiday season also faced treacherous roads, snow and ice may continue to be problem today in the northeast. places like upstate new york and pennsylvania and west virginia. there's good news for drivers. take a look at this. right now the national for a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.24. that's much less than a month ago when the average was about $3.43. but it is about the same as a year ago. tens of millions of americans travel over the next few days, the travel conditions seem to be improving at least when compared to earlier in the week. alex? >> all right. appreciate that live report. we are going to get a look now at the forecast around the country. nbc meteorologist dylan dryer is here with more on that. i know we have a mess in the mess. >> mess in the west and middle of the country with snow all through the week. now we are actually looking at that storm finally pulling away. we had some flight delays in the northeast. mostly because of wind earlier this morning. those now are starting to improve.
parents? >> yes. that was part of my interest. back in the new york city public schools, i had a great teacher. mrs. rauf would read -- mrs. roth would read the newspaper and the about martin luther king. he was rising in all of that, and the civil rights movement and she exposed us to lot. but i was just a junkie. the time i was 9 years old, i was handing leaflets out for robert kennedy. when i was 10, i made a big decision and broke with the democratic party and went to work for john lindsay who was running for mayor of new york. i went down to the liberal party headquarters and was handing out leaflets on the street corner in new york'. some women thought this was really cute, this little boy and leaflets. and she asked me why. and i made the case and got in early start in my political career. she said this is for you and she hands this box of pastries. i took a back to the liberal headquarters and we opened it up and there were all of these doughnuts and a lot of $10 bills. one of my early lessons in politics -- the district leader grabbed the money and said you can keep the doughn
about how guns end up on the streets. what was so compelling to me in this new york times article is understanding kids, gangs and guns. we don't seem to understand how so many guns end up on the streets. many borrowed from friends and family, which it turns out is the case in this shooting where it's his mother's guns that end up killing these children. >> that's right. we have a belief that people are going to stores and either buying them at stores and bringing them back or straw purchasers and buying in bulk, getting them to the hands of kids. our gun laws are targeted to those problems. more than 40% of guns come from friends and family into the hands of shooters. it's an extraordinary figure. how do we stop that? public awareness, social services. i read a statistic that said less than 1% of our fill ant pi goes toward criminal justice. that is extraordinarily woeful. you need a comprehensive package which you are targeting gun laws. you have to raise awareness. you have to get to kids young. what are the consequences? >> governor, i want to bring you in on the comprehensive
in this country over gun control. president obama promising once again, quote, meaningful action. new york city mayor, a staunch gun control advocate, michael bloomberg who endorsed president obama for presidency, says the issue is his now. >> the president campaigned in '08 on a gun control began, and the only legislation that the president has signed since then, one is the right to carry a gun in national parks where our kids play, and one is the right to carry guns on amtrak. i assume that's to stop the rash of train robberies which stopped back in the 1800s. >> joining me now is jonathan -- i want to put a null screen here, this is from the president of the brady center, and he said this in part, i won't read everything there, but he said in part, we genuinely believe this one is different. it's different because no decent human being can look at a tragedy like this and be outraged by the fact that it can happen in our nation and because this time we're really poised to harness that outrage and create a focused exchange. we know that the outrage and the sadness unfortunately, it will dissip
, laura montgomery as well as political writer for "the new york times," john harwood. you heard kelly mention some republicans weren't feeling the president's interview on "meet the press" this morning. they took issue with it. from that interview and what you saw this morning, what did you take from the president's appearance? >> i think the president understands he's got the high ground in the negotiations having won re-election and campaigning on higher taxes on people making more than $250,000 a year and knowing that as of january 1st, if nothing happens in congress, most taxes are going to go up across the board and propose a tax cut. he knows he has an advantage. it's a limited advantage. there's a downside to him, too. there's market reaction, loss of confidence in the united states. there's the mess of having to go back and deal with the sequester of those across the board cut that is nobody wants and dealing with taxes. the president, everybody is trying to avoid a headache. the question is, how does the cube get twisted around so everybody believes they have an outcome that
rockerfeller center in new york city. it's the best and worst in politics in 2012. all the big stars are on the red carpet. donald trump is hoping to win a revvie in the unreality show category. paul ryan is pumped and ready to go. what's with the hat there, fella? and what's an awards show without this guy? he survived a really rough year and he's looking just great tonight. the evening is about to get started. so take a seat before clint eastwood yells at it. sit back and enjoy the show. now, without further adieu, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome your master of ceremonies and the host of "politics nation" u the reverend, al sharpton. >> good evening. i'm al sharpton, host of "politics nation." it's a big night. and we're going to be giving out awards for the high and low points of politics in 2012. to do that, we have a star studded cast of judges. jonathan kapart. victoria difrancesco soto. crystal ball and richard wolf. all looking very elegant this evening, i might say. let's get right to it. let's go right to the first category. let's get started with the best performer in
, new york, the death of children across this country is enough to say to us, we must end all of this madness. come to the table and i think politicians finally get that. >> can the nra, can the influence of this organization, which has intimidated lawmakers for years, thrown money at people that they don't want to see in the congress because they want to protect all this fearmongering that they do, can they finally be defeated by this public outrage? i think that's where we are at right now. good thing there's not an election tomorrow because the nra would be in trouble. it's the fearmongering and can the public finally overcome that? >> i think so. and let's not underestimate them. we know that the nra is laying in the cut. they now know to come forward. feelings are tender. they know that people are outraged and fed up with all of this madness and baloney. so they are going to lay in the cut waiting to reemerge to say, look, all of us lament and mourn but let's not go too far in the other direct. they will put forth arguments, if the teachers are better armed, we know viole
, the "new york times" reporting today that boehner is enjoying the broadest support he has seen in two years but as you know, a lot of conservatives are very angry over his giving any ground on revenue. is the speaker's leadership still strong in your estimation? >> i think it is. and i know that it's a very tough position for our leader to be in. and especially tough when he cannot get the president to come to the table and in addition to that, we have the administration that keeps moving the goalpost. 2010 this very president said this is not the time when the economy is so bad to raise taxes on anyone yet now we're having him say he wants to raise taxes on small business own that's are going to affect about 700,000 jobs. is that really what we need to do in an economy where we have 23 million americans that are struggling for unemployment? this is the reason why we have to hold strong on this. the other this evening ng is we hear from the president on the other side of the coin. we have a spending problem in washington. unless we get serious about talking about that, we'll never solve thi
. but on the other side, the "new york times" says today that boehner has consolidated his grip on republicans in the house. the times says many house republicans appear to view mr. boehner with the same sort of respect that a dark children award their parents for the sage counsel they ignored in their younger days. many members realize they have little choice left but to support him. for those few that palin is referring to, there's a collision course here in the republican party. >> that's right. and part of that reason is because they can count. they can count and they also have -- they can count into the future. they have 18 months. and 18 months is not a long way off. and people have spoken in significant numbers that if you have the same ideology, the same extremists -- and that's the other thing that we should watch -- who replaces demint in south carolina? it will be interesting to see if it will be someone as extreme as demint was or someone more moderate. i would say that you were 100% right. there is a civil war going on among the leadership. remember, the leader used to brag about
hhamto binghamton, new york, and aurora theater. they aren't concentrated in any one part of the country, not confined to any particular setting. shootings have occurred at a pennsylvania hospital, a miami funeral home, a soccer tournament in delaware and a mall in oregon. 85 people died in those 14 incidents. many of them make news for a day or two. then they fade. although some incidents are big enough to prompt action a little bit. after the virginia tech massacre, we learned the gunman's history showed he had treated for mental issues for years. in response, then governor tom cain signed new mental health reform into law giving the sate more latitude to commit mentally ill people who pose a danger and commenting $42 million to the state's facility. two years later, the state found no increase in the number of people committed and multiple cuts to the funding. earlier this year, in colorado, an attack exposed how easy it is to purchase ammunition online. the shooter wag able to bypass federal background checks and buy 3,000 rounds for a pair of glock handguns and 300 shotgun shells, a
is like barack obama and mitt romney -- >> that's right. in yonkers, new york, the worst. >> hardest this year and you were talking about it is breaking through and your ad that broke through virally -- >> yes. >> big bird. >> without any money behind it. >> you never spent -- never aired on actual television. >> it did. it was part of our rotation. just out of there in earned media, 5 million people went to look at it. >> here's the most viral ad of 2012. >> together, we can do this. we can take this country back. ♪ i am america ♪ one voice united we stand ♪ i am america >> there it is! does it get any better? >> it was a great ad and same time -- >> it was -- >> no desire whatsoever to be president. >> no path. >> it was like this is fascinating if you're not trying to be a serious presidential candidate. >> or just have fun. >> it's not just smoking. i'm anti-staff staffer. i think we have to -- >> you won't get -- >> no tv ads for any candidates i have worked for. >> gosh. >> holding him to that. >> advice for other staffers. >> all right. gaggle sticking with us. we have d
a nuclear bomb in new york city or something like that. it is very compelling. well, the argument is that if you use racial determination for college admissions, it is likely that there will be somewhat more -- somewhat more of unrehearsed, interracial conversations are in especially among students. under the african-american kids and a latino kids who get these preferences -- they will say something to the white kids and asian kids that have overwhelming compelling educational benefits for them. that is a argument that the university of texas is arguing. that is an exception of non-discrimination that the supreme court has recognized. okay? okay. i think that's ridiculous. and, indeed, the reason the court buys this is because there are social sciences out there and scientists who say this is true. now, increasingly, these educational benefits, which, you know, make only marginal improvements to education access, they are disputed. you know, it is increasingly disputed that their are any educational benefits. but i think it is also important for the court to bear in mind, and i t
the conservative movement type here in d.c. and members of congress themselves. and the "new york times" today talks about the meeting up on the hill where boehner has so much support. >> right. >> among his own conference and yet you talk to heritage or club for growth or anybody like that and they'll say we don't want a deal. they're getting to the point where they don't want a deal. >> but wait a minute. there is a third group. look at bobby jindal. how about what jindal said? who is no moderate. let's not pretend the guy tries to say he is a moderate and he said hum. apparently the republican position is protect the rich to cut old people. >> right. exactly. so you're finding everyone now squeezing in their message and trying to push boehner in a direction toward making a move. i think boehner actually has controlled this pretty well given the pitfalls that he has in front of him. and i think that basically you've got his caucus now saying, we're with you in this fight. we'll follow you through the door. that's a good spot for him to be in. >> so what is the white house -- do they just wai
, maine, maryland, massachusetts, new hampshire, new york, vermont, and washington allow same-sex marriage or soon will. so does washington, d.c. record lines are expected for those wanting a first come, first serve seat during the historic supreme court proceedings. as nbc's pete williams puts it, today's move by the supreme court could result in the roe v. wade of guy rights. joining me now is political strategist steve elmendorf and chris geithner, senior political reporter for buzz feed. steve, i want to go to you first on this. there has been a lot of discussion and a lot of back and forth whether it's a good thing for marriage equality for the supreme court to take up these issues. some folks think better to leave it at the state level. there has been a lot of progress there. are you bullish or bearish on this? >> i'm bullish. i think the supreme court is going to do the right thing. you know, it's hard to predict, but i think the country has been moving so fast in the right direction. the court is not immune to public opinion. the court is not immune to the wind blowing through the
to change my views. i grew up in new york, very republican, very conservative upbringing, my father was a stockbroker and later in my life i went to see peter one day and i wanted to ask him how did the atomic bomb really get started, because we all treated like it had to be dropped, ended the war, there's no -- so the question bugged me, and we got into the story of how the bomb was dropped. that leads to so many other questions about world war ii, what really happened, and the cold war right after. this is the time when stalin dies in this clip, it's a significant opportunity, again, to bring together the two countries, and it's muffled. >> we see it as a lost opportunity. march 5, 1953, the soviet leaders had decided there was a chance to reverse course, they reached out very, very openly to the west, and the u.s. leaders, eisenhower and dullis debated what to do. eisenhower makes a tremendous speech, then two days later dullis rejects the premise of what eisenhower said and we go back to the intensified cold war. >> you know, we even know that from more contemporary american his
. then there was congresswoman mccarthy, carol mccarthy from new york, who said yesterday, quote, the gloves are off if president obama fails to act on the issue. is the white house saying anything at all about some of the backlash that it's starting to get? >> reporter: well, not so far. at this point, i think jay carney made the point he did not feel comfortable talking about policy this soon after the shooting. but this would undoubtedly be a big issue for this white house in the coming days and weeks. they will undoubtedly get a number of questions about this. and craig, i can tell you, yesterday evening, there was a vigil that formed outside of the white house. and a lot of the people who attended that vigil called for stiffer gun legislation. other people went online, hundreds of them, calling for stiffer gun legislation. so i think we will see a renewed effort on that front. the brady campaign, by the way, gave this administration an "f" for its handling of this issue, back in 2010. so there will be pressure on this president to actually take action, to follow through with his words, certainly from the pe
